Nancy Pelosi Set to Send Trump Impeachment to Senate: Dropping Trial Is ‘Not How You Unify’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday dismissed concerns that sending the impeachment article against former President Donald Trump to the Senate would alienate his supporters, saying that forgoing a trial against Trump is “not how you unify.”

Pelosi’s comments came during a morning press briefing after a reporter asked the speaker if she was worried that proceeding to an impeachment trial would “undercut” President Joe Biden’s call for unity that he made at his inauguration speech Wednesday.

“No, I’m not worried about that,” Pelosi said. “The fact is the president of the United States committed an act of incitement of insurrection. I don’t think it’s very unifying to say, ‘Oh, let’s just forget it and move on.’”

Pelosi is set to send one impeachment article against Trump to the Senate after the House voted 232–197 to impeach the then-president last week for “incitement of insurrection” over the deadly riot that took place at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
